Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest place in the world, home to a few scientists, engineers and medical professionals all at the top of their game. Every day is about survival. Every day is about saving the planet.
And then Chris came along to make some Art.
For three and a half months Chris lived and worked alongside the team at the British Antarctic Survey. He discovered that sometimes it’s very difficult to justify your position as an Artist whilst everyone around you is a Hero.
Following on from Chris’ acclaimed show All Roads Lead to Rome this is an adventure story about overcoming hardships and celebrating difference via tales of carnivorous ducks, ladybird books and a sledge built out of gold picture frames.
“What emerges – apart from some of the most surreal holiday snaps you’ll ever see – is a multifaceted work that interrogates the nature and purpose of art at the same time as embracing the all-sorts it takes to make a world…. charmingly, optimistically and heartwarmingly – Dobrowolski brings a shared humanity to the fore.” -Matt Trueman, Culture Wars
